Today I’m sharing information about a new method of strength training that I’ve been testing. It’s the most efficient and impactful training I’ve ever experienced, so I thought many of you would be interested in learning about it.
I hope you enjoy the newsletter, and as always, I appreciate feedback, questions, and comments, which you can provide in two ways:
A New Way to Build Strength That Requires Little Time and No Experience
Many people never become stronger because they think strength training requires a lot of time and experience. Thankfully, these are total misconceptions. Anybody, especially beginners, can safely make significant strength gains in very little time and with hardly any experience. While there are many ways to accomplish this goal, I’m really excited to share a new method with you that I’ve been using to great effect for the past couple months.
If everyone wants to become stronger, why don’t they?
Everyone wants to become stronger. But I know many people, and I’ll include myself, who don’t become stronger. It would be easy to blame people for being lazy or undisciplined. But these aren’t the main reasons that many people fail to become stronger.
One of the greatest obstacles is that people don’t know what it takes to become stronger. Or, they think they know what it takes, but what they think isn’t true.
One of the most harmful misconceptions is the notion that a great amount of time and experience is required to become stronger.
This misconception underlies the two most common reasons that people give for not exercising:
The subtext to both of these is “and thus I’ll do nothing because I don’t want to waste my time or injure myself.” Another common reason that people don’t perform strength training, or exercise at all, is that they simply don’t enjoy it.
In reality, it takes very little time and hardly any experience to gain strength. Substantial strength gains can be achieved in such little time, that even someone who hates every second of their exercise should have only a few seconds which they can complain about. And, I’m willing to bet that many of those who claim not to enjoy exercise would change their minds if they realized how much stronger they could become in such little time.
In this video I talk about ARX machines and what makes them so efficient and effective. If you can’t read the article above, watching this is a decent stand-in.https://youtu.be/LSXdg9SeMsg
You’ll see in the videos that I put a lot of intensity into my effort. I’m told that this might appear intimidating, but it’s important to know that you don’t have to push this hard.https://youtu.be/Y8FzHOGUuQs https://youtu.be/o6pSok9XTMg
You can probably tell that I’m pretty excited about these ARX machines. They’re really impressive, but I realize that not everybody will have access, nor will everyone be interested in them. There are many other ways to efficiently build strength. I discuss other options in the full article, and also in another of my articles: Building Strength and Mobility with 1 Workout per Week.
